    I am so sick and tired of sitting in hours of backups every summer with only one lane open on 196 for them to fill in nooks and crannies to save a 50 year old bridge. This route would be much more suitable for metro GR transportation if it was completely rebuilt all at once and widened to three or four thru lanes with more modern interchanges, then it would require little work for at least 20 years.
